  • Why was regeneration needed in Newham?
    • The River Lea is a tributary of the Thames and the Lea Valley was once one of the main industrial areas in London.
    • By 2007, when work began to create the Olympic Park, many of the industries had already gone and some of the site was derelict and overgrown.
    • The Lower Lea Valley in eats London was the site for the 2012 Olympics
    • Newham, along with the other boroughs around the site, is in one of the most deprived parts of London.
